Today is the first year of the Lunar New Year. Gone with the Goat and in with the Monkey. The Fire Monkey, that is. Gone with the old and in with the new.
In many Asian countries, the Lunar New Year is seen as a fresh start, a new beginning. In very pragmatic fashion, this leads many to cleaning their home, decluttering, buying new clothes, getting flowers, etc.
Later this year, it will be 10 years that I live in Asia, and I cannot help but to take on some of the traditions on my own. Thus arrives a new Napo: the design of the blog has changed, the address is no longer on WordPress – yet WordPress still powers the whole site, and I am posting stuff with words again!
Stay tuned, and Happy New Year of the Monkey to everyone!
